MARCH 1968
4/4
THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND - album - THE HANGMAN’S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER
This is the third album from the Scottish folk psychedelic group, and maybe their most famous . Besides the folk music of the British Isles, there are Indian, and North African touches, and like the also eclectic American band, Kaleidoscope an influence on Led Zeppelin . They sold well in the UK, not so much in the US , but were know in serious music circles .

FLEETWOOD MAC - BLACK MAGIC WOMAN - March 29
Singles were still often not included on British albums . This would have made a nice addition to the next Fleetwood Mac album .
As is, might be the best know of songs form the Peter Green era band (that and “Oh Well”) . Of course most people know it from Santana’s cover a couple years later . I’ve read that Stevie Nicks didn’t even know it was originally a Fleetwood Mac song (…) Here it is represented by live version from 1970, near the end go Green’s time with the band . By this time besides him and Jeremy Spenser , they had added Danny Kirwan, as a third guitarist .

GRATEFUL DEAD - Haight Street, etc.
The Dead mostly played on the home turf this month, with a trip to Anaheim, and a curtailed trip back east, to the Bahamas , and Europe (only played Detroit) . We have some shows mainly from the Carousel Ballroom . As usual, LIA has it covered . Follow the links .

Fleetwood Mac with Green was great. It reminded me of the post seeing him in Germany back then
From that I found this track which is great too, I love the rehearsal part in the beginning

The ISB has Bid you Good Night, shepherd call the tune and lay down my sister and a prayer, quite the song

"May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light within you
Guide you all the way on"

Green, and esp Kirwan, really make this tune...unreal; unfortunately, the sound is not synched to this video, if I recall (ie, they mixed and matched). Not that it really matters.

Those two were a great pair of lead players that do not get the recognition they deserve...

Have you run by this video of the Green era? I've spent a lot of time on YT due to my enforced stillness. :)

And I gotta stick up for poor ole Stevie, FWM live didn't sound like those gauzy records they put out. She was and is I guess a full on psycho drama queen live.

i have seen some of that vid, not all though . Thanks .
The "girls" era FWM is not something I like . But I will grant a great deal of craft in those songs .
I could see that they might be a good live unit .
